Shocker: Someone Finally Asks Pantsuit a Tough Question

What's it been, seven years in office and this woman hasn't had to answer a difficult question from the feckless media?

Well, actually, this is a no-brainer: Should illegals aliens get driver's licenses?

Obviously, the overwhelming majority of New Yorkers don't agree with Eliot Spitzer's insane plan.

Now Mrs. Clinton fumbles a routine question she should have been prepared for.
Hillary Rodham Clinton stumbled badly at last night's Democratic debate when she repeatedly refused to give a direct answer about whether she supports Gov. Spitzer's plan to give driver's licenses to illegal aliens - and got slammed by her opponents for evasive double-talk.

"I was confused on Sen. Clinton's answer," said Sen. Barack Obama, who backs the plan. "I can't tell whether she was for it or against it."

He added, "One of the things that we have to do in this country is be honest about the challenges that we face."
Of all people, the Sandwich King took her to task.
Sen. Chris Dodd of Connecticut said a driver's license was "a privilege, not a right," and that illegals shouldn't be allowed to get one.

Clinton shot back that "I did not say that it should be done," prompting Dodd to counter, "You said yes."

"No I didn't, Chris," Clinton insisted.

The Democratic front-runner said illegal immigrants are "driving on our roads. The possibility of them having an accident that harms themselves or others is just a matter of the odds."

But she did not clearly say whether or not she backs Spitzer's plan.

That prompted MSNBC moderator Tim Russert to ask, "Do you . . . support your governor's plan to give an illegal immigrant a driver's license?"

Again, Clinton wouldn't respond directly, saying, "We want people to come out of the shadows," and adding Spitzer is "making an honest effort to do it."

"Unless I'm missing something, Senator Clinton said two different things in about two minutes," said former Sen. John Edwards.
There she is, folks, your already-coronated Democrat nominee.

Good luck propping her up for another year.
